The longer I live the more I am thankful, nothing in this life is guaranteed with the exception that we are all born and we will one day all die. The rest in the middle can be here one moment and gone the next. So I choose to thank our good Lord for each moment. Good and bad. I know it is not typical to be thankful for the bad and I am not so much thankful for the bad itself, but in most cases things could be worse. The night before Joel’s brain surgery when I did not know if he would live or die I was not thankful for the massive tumor but I was thankful for Joel, for the hospital, my family and friends who were praying and thankful that they had found the tumor and could operate.
Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with friends and family and eat turkey but it is also a time to give thanks.
I am thankful for my family, my husband, 6 children, my parents and brother, all my in laws and extended family.
I am thankful for the roof over my head, the food on my plate, the van we drive (even though it is dying!)
I am thankful for my Lord Jesus Christ and my walk with Him.
I am thankful for the joy a smile and laughter brings.
I am thankful for my freedom and my country.
I am thankful for the change of season and the beautiful colour.
I could go on and on. We had a wonderful weekend, we celebrated with family on Saturday because Dave had to work Sunday and Monday. Here are a few pictures from our weekend.Yes I need something elegant to put the gravy in.
